The All-American Rejects Release Two New Songs

After teasing new music, frontman Tyson Ritter released a pair of tracks -- "Sweat" and "Close Your Eyes" -- Thursday (July 6), along with an 11-minute-long film directed by Jamie Thraves.

In the visual, Ritter leads a double life as both Robert, a suit-wearing family man, and Betsy, the cross-dressing sex worker he transforms into at night. And while the two new singles seem unrelated at first listen -- "Sweat" being a thumping, anthemic head-banger along the lines of 2008's "Gives You Hell," while "Close Your Eyes" is a heartfelt ballad -- the video ties them together by the finale.
